Pizza in a Pot


A camping recipe from Irene. This is a favorite meal both at home or on the camp stove. One-pot meals are our favorite - fast and little cleanup.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 pound lean hamburger
  • 1/4 pound Italian sausage or pepperoni
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 1 can sliced mushrooms (undrained)
  • 1 can (5 1/2 oz.) tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons oregano (to taste)
  • 1 cup pasta of your choice
  • Mozzarella cheese


Brown hamburger, stirring frequently to break up until no longer pink. Drain any fat. Add onions and red pepper, and stir fry, until almost done. Add mushrooms and remaining ingredients. Add enough water just to cover. Cook covered over low heat, until pasta is tender. When done, cover the entire top with as much shredded cheese as you like. Cover again, turn off burner, and let sit for 5 - 10 minutes, until cheese is melted. Spoon out servings onto warmed garlic bread, pitas or whatever you have.

Servings: 4-6
